CP S2 7079. Built 1948 by MLW under license from Alco, from series 7076-7095.
CP S2 7088. Built 1949 in the first 'Multimark' scheme, a modeller's nightmare!
Many of CP's S2's lasted in service until 1986.
CP S3 6524. The 660 HP S3 was ideally suited for light switching duties in coach yards.
The 6524 was a fixture at CP's Glenn Yard in Montreal assembling trains for both commuter
and long distance trains. Built by MLW in 1955 from series 6500-6600.
CP S3 6587. Classy unit in a classy surrounding. Note the late MLW carbody with number
boards and sand filler hatches on the hood end. See the S2's for the older carbody style.
CP S3 6526 in the older 'block lettering'. Built in '55.
No other class 1 RR bought as many S3's as the CP.
